Buzz List: Eight NFL players to watch this weekend

WattThe NFL’s postseason kicks off with four games this weekend and it seems each of them have players to watch when it comes to collecting football cards.

Here’s one player from all eight teams Buzz says could be of interest — some obvious, some not.

Watt-PizzaJ.J. Watt — The Houston Texans’ defensive dynamo and part-time tight end is basically a household name with his bloody noses and his Papa John’s commercials, but when it comes to autographed Rookie Cards he might be overvalued.

(Maybe him being able to successfully complete a pizza curl in a follow-up Papa John’s commercial would help?)
